Sorry No Proms.
We grew up in the Poconos region and met in junior high school. We got married a few years ago and now live and work in NYC with our beloved dog, Oliver. We love to travel, bike and ski, and try to spend as much time with friends as possible. John enjoys endurance sports like triathlons and marathons and Jess is a fantastic cook and artist---some of the art in the house is hers. We love spending time at the house on free weekends, drinking a glass of wine while watching the sun set over the lake and we hope you will, too!
Jessica & John Kopec purchased this house in 2015
It's a perfect escape from city life and offered the peace and quiet we were looking for with a seemingly endless list of fun activities to do nearby.
Ideal location near skiing, dining, bars, shopping and so much more. But with a fire pit, hot tub, indoor fireplaces, large kitchens and cozy furniture, the house makes relaxing and staying in so much fun.
We rented this duplex for a weekend 40th birthday celebration. It was adequate for our party of 16 which included 9 adults and 6 children. The Kopecs were kind enough to allow an early check in at noon on friday, a beautiful fall day. Unfortunately Saturday was wet and cool but the kids as well as the adults enjoyed the nearby indoor water park. At check in the hot tub and wifi were not working but the Kopecs helped in getting those things remedied. Although not an issue for us, access to the lake is a bit awkward and might disappoint some as might those planning to use the outdoor grills. We had a wonderful weekend and would rent there again.
House was nice and big. Yard is beautiful. Fire pit was great for everyone to gather in the beautiful fall weather. Owners very responsive. Thanks!!
I was part of a group of 6 couples (12 people in total) that rented the Little Owl's Nest to celebrate my fiance's birthday. From the very beginning Jessica and John were extremely organized and hospitable. They answered all my questions and even provided a helpful welcome packet. Upon arriving at the cabin, everything was clean and ready for us. We had a ton of fun swimming by the private dock, relaxing in the hot tub and grilling on the beautiful deck. Overall, I highly recommend staying at the Little Owl's Nest! We will definitely be back again sometime soon.
We had a great time at Little Owl's Nest this past week. There were 11 of us (4 adults and 7 kids) and the house was more than big enough. We really enjoyed hanging out in the living room watching the Olympics on the big flat screen tv. The layout of the 1st floor is perfect with the open floor plan. The kitchen is great with the big island. More than enough space to prepare all our meals.
The deck was also great and we all loved the hot tub!
The location of the house is perfect. We took day trips to Hickory Run State Park and walked the boulder field and hiked to Hawk's Falls. We also took a day trip to Beltzville State Park and rented a pontoon boat for fishing and swimming. Both parks were very short drives from the house and we're beautiful! We also utilized the beach at Split Rock. The dock access to Lake Harmony is a short walk from the house. The kids loved playing in the lake and paddling their kayaks around.
The house is also super close to Piggy's and Hog's Head Ice cream. We didn't get a chance to eat at Piggy's but we LOVED Hog's Head. They had the best ice cream!!
All in all, we had a great time at the house and John was super responsive to all my questions.
Rebecca and family
John and Jessica were incredibly easy to deal with and very responsive to my questions. Nice place tucked away in the hill, with plenty of amenities. Would stay again if given the opportunity.
The house is wonderful, and a minute's walk from the lake. They have a small dock to fish off of, from which I caught my first freshwater fish! Now that was a neat experience. There are plenty of activities to do on the lake. But when you want to hide away, the house is a perfect retreat. Jessica and John respond to questions very quickly--not that you will have many after reading their brochure, which is exceptionally thorough.
Walk to multiple restaurants, bars, groceries and ice cream on/near the lake! Skiing, hiking, paintball, shopping, watersports and more are within minutes!
2 miles from Split Rock Resort (tickets required) containing mini-golf, an arcade, a bowling alley, movie theater, water park, and tennis...all open to the public. A great place for families and kids.
Outlet shopping less than 30 minutes away!
